Enjoyed using my new tea boat (to display my beautiful wood-fired @jonathansteeleceramics teapot), and pouring tea from my new double walled glass fairness pitcher from @unytea.store (displayed on a wonderful Jonathan Steele wood-fired ceramic saucer)! The double walled layer of glass perfectly preserves the aromatic floral and fruity high notes of the tea, while maintaining heat retention to preserve the earthy bass notes of the tea's flavor. Thank you Jeff! Loving these new tea tools! Scroll to the second photo for a detail image of how the glass surface allows you to see the clarity and beautiful color of the tea. The tea is a delicious Gold Medal High Mountain Jin Xuan Oolong from the wonderful tea friends at @ecochateas ! Thank you for viewing my friends and have a great day! #unytea #unyteam #unyteaguy #jeffreybestcleary #ecocha #goldmedal #highmountain #jinxuan #oolong #fairnesspitcher #chahai #teaboat #chapan #jonathansteeleceramics #tea #cha #teatime #teaculture #teaskill #knowledge #thankyouforviewing #haveagreatday #peace #love #thankfulness

Mugshot Mondays: Today's mugshot features a porcelain gaiwan that was made in Jingdezhen, China, and then sourced by the knowledgable tea advocates at @mei_leaf ! Mei Leaf is an amazing resource for tea culture and the practical application of tea. Their masterclasses and YouTube videos are an invaluable tool for gaining insight into the health benefits, preparation methods, and historical narratives of the numerous and diverse types of tea. Be sure to check them out. Enjoying beginning the day with day two and infusion six of Mei Leaf's delicious 2016 gushu/ancient arbor "Bloom Buster" sheng puerh, with tea leaves that were processed from 300 year old tea trees. This is a liltingly floral and fruity tea with a soft but sturdy depth of flavor that leaves you with a gentle and calming feeling in your body. Thank you for viewing my friends and have a wonderful week. Happy Monday all! #mugshotmondays #mugshotmonday #meileaf #meileaf_don #gaiwan #porcelain #jingdezhen #jingdezhenporcelain #puerh #sheng #raw #ancientarbor #gushu #bloombuster #teaknowledge #teaculture #teatime #thankyouforviewing #happymondayall

It's always great fun making lidded vessels. ✨😊✨ Each one teaches me something new. Navigating the space between form and function is always intriguing. Have a great day my friends! #liddedvessels #ceramics #pottery #functional #sculpture #form #classical #thankyouforviewing #haveagreatday

Mugshot Mondays: Today's mugshot is a a focus on contemplative cups after midnight with @jonathansteeleceramics 's beautiful tea cup! Enjoying simplicity of form and light to focus on the importance of appreciating details. Be well friends and keep exploring!

Enjoyed a wonderfully reflective afternoon at @leachbotanicalgarden here in Portland, OR! There are so many places to commune with and appreciate the beauty of nature here. I highly recommend visiting if you are in or near Oregon. Scroll through the photos to find a nice nature video at the end. 😊 Take care friends and enjoy the rest of your Sunday! #leachbotanicalgardens #leachbotanicalgarden #nature #forest #forests #relaxation #reflection #calm #appreciation #haveagreatsunday #wishingyouallthebest #portland #portlandoregon #oregonwilderness #beautiful #thebeautyofnature

Mugshot Mondays: Today's "Rock and Crag Ware" tea bowl was made by your's truly! Amidst making Chinese gaiwan and other ceramic wares, I also enjoy making Japanese tea bowls and chawan. This throwback piece was unloaded from the Tomagama wood kiln at @pleasant_hill_pottery in December of 2016. One of my favorite pieces that emerged from that firing. It's amazing what lots of wood ash and slow cooling (among many other nuanced factors including kiln design alone) can do to alter the chemical makeup of glaze and clay. The beauty of life is in the details. Keep exploring friends, have a great week, and wishing everyone the best!

Excited to be teaching a three weekend workshop at @ocacceramics on exploring/making Chinese tea wares and doing a variety of tea tastings during the class!

This course will focus on the historical, cultural, and functional applications of Chinese tea wares and the appreciation of various teas that are implemented in Gongfu Cha (Literally translates to “making tea with skill”). The course will begin with a slideshow on a brief survey of Chinese tea history and tea culture, and many of the numerous tea ware types used to prepare, infuse, and enjoy loose/whole leaf teas. Students will learn to make a gaiwan (tea infusing vessel consisting of a lid, bowl, and saucer), a chahu (teapot), cha bei (teacup), cha hai (fairness cup), and a small cha pan (tea boat). The course will conclude with a slideshow and tea tasting that will focus on a selection of delicious Chinese, Taiwanese, and Japanese teas consisting of white, green, oolong, and puerh. Students will use the wares that they made in class for the concluding tea tasting.

The course will take place Saturdays and Sundays from 10/28 to 11/12, 9 am to 3 pm per course session. If you are in the Portland, OR area, be sure to check out this and the many other courses being offered at @ocac_edu .

Mugshot Mondays: Today's lil' shot glass/tea cup was made by my dear friend and mentor, the Mud Poet Michael Terra of @terracottage Ceramics! I did a ceramics internship with Michael and his partner, the amazing logistics goddess Victoria, in Paducah, KY in 2013. Enjoyed learning the finer points of production pottery, sculpture, and lots of philosophical approaches to art and life with the Terra family and my Paducah family of artists in the Lower Town community (painters, sculptors, ceramicists, mixed media artists, printmakers, dancers, fiber artists, and many others). Miss them and sending love to them all! I love drinking from this cup and seeing it's fun smirk as I enjoy my morning tea. Thank you for this kind gift Michael! Been enjoying using it since I received it during the 2016 @nceca conference in Kansas City, Missouri. Have a great week my friends, and happy Monday all! #mugshotmondays #mugshotmonday #terracottageceramics #michaelterra #victoriaterra #theterraway #paducahky #lowertown #historicdistrict #kindness #community #artists #shotglass #teacup #adventurepots #paducahfamily #nceca #thankyouforviewing #haveagreatweek #happymondayall

I recently had some of my work featured in a great National exhibition at @eclipsemill243 in North Adams, MA in the Berkshires titled "I'll Drink To That". There were two wonderful articles recently released on this exhibition by the @berkshireeagle and @iberkshires . Thank you for sharing Eclipse Mill Gallery and I am excited about having work in this amazing exhibition amongst so many talented artists! Thank you for your support and interest my friends! Have a great weekend!

Mugshot Mondays: Today's "Rock and Crag Ware" cup was made by your's truly! Enjoying starting this beautiful day with @ecochateas 's roasted, caramelized, and nutty Shan Lin Xi Concubine Oolong (and bamboo coaster, which was also sent by Eco-Cha). Eco-Cha's tea club has truly provided some of the most unique, rounded, and delicious oolongs that I have tasted so far. Highly recommended! This serene session was inspired by @exoteaque 's #sereniTea challenge! @s.g.sanders_teaman , @your_pencil , and @ens_causa_sui_ , I invite you to document a serene tea session and take the challenge as well my friends. Everyone enjoy your day and the eclipse. ✨😎✨ Thank you for viewing and happy Monday all! #mugshotmondays #mugshotmonday #ecocha #oolong #cha #tea #shanlinxi #bamboo #coaster #teatime #serenesession #serenetea #shilohgastelloceramics #rockandcragwares #thankyouforviewing #happymondayall

I had an amazing time teaching the "Evocative Surfaces: Exploring Cone 6-10 Glaze Recipes" class at @ocac_edu this summer! Each of my students took on each assignment with vigor and curiosity, emerging with some excellent glazes. So inspired by the custom glaze tests that they produced from their triaxial blend assignments. Well done! Thank you for viewing and have a great weekend all! #ocac #oregoncollegeofartandcraft #ocacceramics #summerclasses #glaze #glazing #glazetesting #onward #evocativesurfaces #welldone #haveagreatweekendall @ocacceramics
